Rain and High Winds Lash Area, Causing Floods and Train Delays

5” of rain and gale-force winds battered the metropolitan area yesterday, and the National Weather Service said the storm would last at least until the early morning hours today. Flooding was widespread.

On the streets of downtown Manhattan, it was a day of ruined umbrellas as winds of 30 miles an hour and more whipped around the tall buildings.
